My first post

I am 38 Years old, I am from Hungary.

Unfortunately my English isn't so good, but it might develop.

Even now I need a little time to formulate in English what I want to say.

At the end of May 2014 almost all my hair fell out in about 10 days.

2 weeks later hair growth stopped elsewhere too, for example eyebrows, mustache, axillary, etc…

Only my legs and arms ar not  affected.

On my head there is a thin "baby hair" and elsewwhere is also a fine stubble but it…

Scared mom

I can't stop feeling sad and scared for my daughters hair loss. It has been 24 days since we noticed the first quarter sized spot on her scalp, since then her hair loss has been rapidly worsening. I'm heartbroken for my beautiful baby girl who is 13. I cry most of the day when I'm alone. She is doing better than me.

Wig recommendations - NYC area

This regrowth phase I am going through, I keep being a little obsessed with. But looking in the mirror I seeing patches of clear growth and lots of what I call ghost white baby hair.

I just been thinking how I seem to be growing a bit of mohican hair, all on top none on sides, I see often the fashion of woman shaving the sides of the hair, and think to myself my body is trying to copy that.

I remind myself daily not to get excited, that it can go as quick as…

Cure for alopecia?

I just read an article about a new approved FDA medication for people with alopecia. Pictures were included with this article. Studies were done in New York. The drug is called ruxolitinib.

Will this pain ever end?

I've had alopecia since I was 11 years old. It started as a tiny bald spot, the size of a nickle, my mom had taken me to my family doctor and he start injections in my scalp. At first it wasn't too bad but my head would start to hurt a lot later. The bald spots finally went away on their own and it wasn't until a two years later they started again. At the age of 13 my dad had past away and I noticed another spot. The doctor told me it was from stress, I kept thinking to myself, I'm 13, what…

My struggle

I've been dealing with Alopecia for a little over a year now. Some days are better than others. I've lost a good bit of my hair on the left side of my head mostly and i'm starting to see new bald spots on the right side very small right now but afraid they are going to get like the left. The left side is growing back after i started using the fluocinonide cream the doctor gave me but i feel like my hair is just thinning out more and more and more. I'm not sure if i'm just being over paranoid…

The lesser of 2 evils

Mentally I'm not ready for either but its time to make a choice. Is it better to wake up and see new bald spots every morning, or do I just shave it off and just get use to the fact that I have no hair??? Honestly I'm torn. I have loss over a third of my hair in the past month. If it continues to fall out like this I wont be able to hide the bald spots much longer. So really what's the better option??? My heart hurts either way!! :(
